Lyrics-"Broken Lullaby"

Listen   

Broken Lullaby

You and I come together
Tell me why do we sound more like stormy weather?
For a time your love was sweet forever
Now all I can hear are words just strung together
So tonight, I’ve run out of alibis
This is just a broken lullaby

I know you’d hoped for better
Someone to dance through your dreams,
Tell you something clever and make you smile
At one more complete surrender
You wanted all this and more
Wrapped in empty gestures
But tonight
I won’t blame you if you’re tired
This is just a broken lullaby

I’ve been busy counting sheep
Wishing I could go to sleep forever
Just a tired melody
That used to sound so sweet

I’ve been busy counting sheep
Wishing I could fall asleep forever
Singing a tired melody
That you used to think was sweet

You thought that golden slumbers
Were a treasure to be found
Buried ’neath the covers of our love
Sleep pretty darling don’t you cry
This is just a broken lullaby
I tried to make it rhyme
This is just a broken lullaby
